Los Angeles Sliding Glass Doors

Welcome Natural Light into Your Home with Sliding Glass Doors

Blur the line between the indoors and outdoors by adding sliding glass patio doors to your home. Why keep the two apart when you can connect the comfort of your indoor living space to the open air of your outdoor patio. Imagine opening up your sliding glass door to a balcony overlooking Los Angeles, inviting an abundance of natural light into your home and allowing you to step out into the refreshing Southern California breeze.

Sliding doors are composed of large panes of glass that glide along a track, staying within the frame. It functions this way to provide a large opening to the outdoors, leaving extra space on the inside for furniture and decor and more freedom of movement.

  • sliding door screen Sliding Screen Door Sliding glass doors don’t have to serve as an open invitation to the outdoors, because not all elements of the Southern California climate are welcome in your home. The warm weather, especially for coastal neighborhoods like Venice and the Pacific Palisades, can bring mosquitoes and other pests to your area. Screens1 enable you to keep these insects out while the cool breeze is allowed safe passage into your home.
  • Traditional wood, French-style sliding glass doors Sliding French Patio Doors

    Cape Cod style homes have become a staple of neighborhoods like Sherman Oaks and Encino over the last few years. Perfect for idyllic living, these homes are often simple and practical. But some homeowners are looking to add a touch of sophistication that won’t clash with the traditional style of their home. Sliding French patio doors offer exactly that, incorporating a classic French look into your Cape Cod style home that adds space and style.

  • modern style Modern and Contemporary Style

    Los Angeles is no stranger to unique architecture styles, but modern, mid-century modern, and contemporary houses stand out among the crowd as today’s most popular styles. Sliding glass doors are the perfect match for a modern style home, complementing the open layout with an abundance of natural light and allowing you to take advantage of the surrounding landscape with a picturesque panorama of the outdoors. Conversely, if you’re looking to update your traditional or Victorian style home, sliding glass doors provide a contemporary touch to an otherwise traditional home.

  • Multi-sliding doors Multi-Sliding Doors

    Contemporary style homes, by nature, are always changing. The current definition in the Los Angeles area is a home that blends traditional and modern elements. Consider a happy medium between the two. To add a modern element to a more traditional design, multi-slide glass doors can be the perfect fit. These multi-slide doors, which can be configured up to 10 panels wide, open up entire walls of your home to the outside world and that beautiful California weather.

Los Angeles Climate Recommendations

Milder than a Mediterranean climate, Los Angeles is associated with very mild and relatively rainy winters and warm and sunny summers. Energy-efficient glass can be especially effective in helping to protect against the summer heat. If you’re living along the coast, you’ll want to consider materials and finishes that will be able to help withstand the harmful effects of the salt in the air.

Low-E Protection

Low-E Protection

Keep your home comfortable — and protected from the heat — with Low-E insulating glass that will also help keep energy costs down. SunDefense™ Low-E Insulating Glass with Argon can block 94 percent of the sun’s heat and ultraviolet rays.

Durable Materials

Durable Materials

Don’t leave your patio doors vulnerable to corrosion from the salt in the air. Living close to the coast means your home is more susceptible to the effects. Fiberglass and wood with aluminum cladding can help resist wear from the sun and the ocean air.

Weather Protection

Weather Protection

Prepare wooden patio doors for the humid coastal winds, salty ocean air, and abundant sunshine. EnduraClad® and EnduraClad® Plus exterior finishes help resist fading and look great for years.
